We were really pleased to receive an enquiry from Colleen to advertise her husbands business with us this week. Colleen
already runs two adverts with us so was happy to recommend us
to her husband and friends.

"Thanks – he does want to go ahead… I havetold a few others
about the website too… you always pop-up on searches and I
know we’re had a few enquiries from the ad.  Works both ways
for us…referrals and rankings so win win!  In fact, I’m sending out my annual bills in a few days and I think I’ll tell folks about your site… maybe a few more will come your way.  I think you’re excellent value for money."

And another satisfied client!

"We are very pleased to be able to tell you that we have let the house which we advertised with you.  Charlie could not have been more friendly and helpful in preparing the advertisement, putting in late hours and working weekends in order to speed up the process, (special thanks to you, Charlie).

We found your prices very reasonable compared to similar sites and because of your efficient service and widespread exposure, we had a big response and let the house in three weeks.  With your help, we are now preparing an advertisement for another small house that we have available and really appreciate the excellent terms you have offered us.  Our grateful thanks to all.  Very highly recommended!"

Kind regards
Sally and Jean-Luc CARAYON

We answered an email enquiry in our normal manner last week and this is the reply we received!

"Many thanks for your email and also such a prompt response. Incredibly efficient and I am impressed as I thought that I may get a response in a week or two and was so pleased and grateful that you got back to me so quickly. This is by no means saying that I expected you personally to take your time when replying as this was the first time I had contacted you, but was due to my past experiences with other websites which certainly have not been as efficient as you. Fantastic service!"

Amanda 5th July 2011

We hosted this Wanted Advert for Steve Walsh in May and on 27 June he sent us this message


"Can you please now delete the advert from your site as we have found a property to rent."


and we asked if our web site was useful? and he said


"Yes, immensely, as we found a long term rental property from it and have received several other offers in terms of haulage and networks. Its an excellent site - many thanks." Steve


So there you go - we are THE ONE STOP SHOP!

And further to Pete and Christine's first email to us we received this today 20 February 2011 - although the buyers did not come from our web site it is good to know people went to look and took the web site details with them.


Our house (7 Le Petit Murat, Benevent L'Abbaye) which you have advertised as the Property of the Month Limousin on Line Web Site  HAS BEEN SOLD;

We completed the Compromis de Vente last Monday and the buyer confirmed in writing yesterday that they are buying the house.

We would like to thank everyone for all their help in composing the advert.  In the past two weeks we have had three cars come to the our house with a Internet Printout and look at the grounds, although they did not  knock our door. The buyers, who live locally, saw a homemade sign we had fixed on our gate, and this led to the sale.

Best wishes and thanks once again


Peter & Chris Wakefield. 20th February 2011


We placed a property for sale advert for Pete and Christine Wakefield this week and this is what they had to say to us

Property for Sale by Owner Creuse


We would like to express our thanks to you for all the work you have done on our behalf in placing the Sale Advert for our property.  We are
aware that we complicated things by not sending the pictures in the correct format.  The way in which you have presented it on Limousin on Line has presented the property in its best possible light, and it would be great if over the coming weeks it led to people coming to view.
I have received the pdf file safely this evening and will store it for future use. Yours sincerely Peter & Chris Wakefield. 2nd February 2011
Sheila Pickering advertised her property for sale with us just after Christmas and so far has had two visits from that ad!  View Shiela's property here Just back from England and LOADS of emails to reply to. Great response. We had someone come Thursday, they were bowled over by the floor in the kitchen/dining room and loved everything. We just have to wait and see. Then we have someone else coming next Friday. We also had a young French couple who had found us by asking around. So, my dears, fingers crossed. S Pickering 24th January 2010  

A message from our friends at



The home for older doggies.


   A recent Dordogne on Line reader came over to see us for the first time last week and wrote to the dogs..."I did enjoy my afternoon with you all... human and canine, and I thought you the canines, all looked  happy and content. I liked the tranquility of your home and that each of you has the possibility to wander out in the garden, or come and have a cuddle or a pat  or just curl up and be peaceful and sleep. I'm sure that you know you have a Mum and Dad in a billion!"  


These were very kind words, but Mum and Dad, (Leeanne and Mike), couldn't do this without you, Dordogne on Line or the readers. We have  23 puddings in at the mo, bless 'em.  Steady support continues  from the readers, thank you.  Bedding and Bric - a - brac especially.  Thanks again for all your support,  we really couldn't do it without you.

Goodness Pat has been busy, here is another satisfied customer for Pat at LINK

"Patricia Littlewood has been a bright light in what would have been a difficult if not impossible process, without her. Due to unforeseen circumstances we found ourselves in need of help from the French health system. It has been a  long process but with Patricia`s guidance we have been successful and full assistance has just been granted. She is currently helping us with another matter involving the French system and our fingers are crossed that with her help we will be equally successful. I recommend her services as she has made a big difference to our lives and what could have easily become an impossible nightmare." M & P (24270) 31January 2010

And yet another of our reader happy with the services of Pat Littlewood and her service called LINK based at St Yrieix la Perche


"I would just like to say a special thank you to Pat Littlewood of LINK who I phoned for advice. Although I was well out of her catchment area, she very kindly gave me some information over the phone. She also went "beyond the call of duty" when she found my number and called me back with additional information. This gesture was very much appreciated." Ann McGrane 30th January 2010

We placed an advert on our Events and Leisure Page for Mel Howe and within 2 hours of our Newsletter being sent out he had his first response, see his advert for Dog Racing

A Testimonial this week for Alyson from Glow offering beauty services.

"I thought I would pamper myself last week and booked an appointment with Alyson from Glow to have eyebrow and eyelash tint. Brilliant, Alyson came to the house, set up her equipment and off we went. Very pleased with the result and have to say Alyson is very professional. Will definitely be using her again - regards C" 17 December 2009

And here is a testimonial for one of our advertisers STERLING SHOPPING

"I would like to put in another testimonial for Sterling, I can't believe the service they give it really is second to none, and what bugs me is the way people moan if they are late getting to their drop off point, who wouldn't be late sometimes after driving 800 miles across England & France, so next time they moan about late deliveries spare a thought for them, they always have our best interests at heart, & nothing is any trouble for them, keep up the good work guys, most of us appreciate what you do. Anita" 10 December 2009

We are always please to receive a Testimonial for one of our advertisers and here is one for Claire and Peter and their gite (see their advert here) in the Haute Vienne


"Just to let you know that we had a fantastic time in the Limousin at La Grange.  Claire and Peter were really lovely and made us so very welcome, as did the children, so much so that we spent 3 more nights with them on our way back north after spending 4 weeks in the Languedoc. It is a simply beautiful area and have seen some lovely properties,  we are just waiting to sell our house so that we can go back. Regards Gill Thomas" 23 November 2009

We advertise American Square Dancing Classes for Hilary Brayshaw at various locations (see here) and this is what they had to say about their advertising and response.

"ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS Many thanks, your super and a Very Merry Xmas to you all, I would say about 40% of people have joined through your advertising. You are so very helpful and give so much of yourselves, that you inspire us to carry on with the same enthusiasm. Brilliant!! Thanks again Hilary" 23 November 2009

A further testimonial for Pat Littlewodd from Link - see www.link-styrieix.info  

"When we first arrived in France in mid June this year, there were many, many things we needed to set up and organise. But dealing with French administration when your French is more Franglaise is a nightmare. In particular we wanted to set up as AutoEntrepreneurs. One day we stumbled upon Patricia’s business card in a supermarket and we’ve not looked back. She responded quickly to our enquiry, visited us and went through thoroughly all that we needed to do to start the ball rolling. Here we both are just a few months later, fully fledged AE’s with an increasing client base (some direct referrals from Pat herself) and things are going well. We certainly could not have done this without Pat’s help and support, she is a gem! She’s also helped with several other things including registering a car bought here and getting utilities changed. Her rates are extremely reasonable, her service second to none and to boot she is a charming and very friendly lady. Thank you Pat!" Alison & Gary Coussac-Bonneval 16 October 2009

It was wonderful and we are overwhelmed at peoples generosity, be it in time, care and contributions various.Many thanks,Leeanne" 27th August 2009

A testimonial received today 10 August 2009 for Pat at Link

 "Patricia Littlewood helped us sort out a boundary agreement with our French neighbour - she was most efficient and got us the result we needed very quickly, after we had spent two years trying to do it ourselves from a distance.  Very impressed with her service, and her ability to anticipate all eventualities so that it worked first time at the notaire.  A pleasure to work with someone who thinks the process through and pushes things on.  Will definitely use her services again."  Guy & Caroline 24630 August 2009

Colin Menaud from Sweet Chestnut Lakes placed a Wanted Advert with us and was very pleased by the outcome!

"Please could you take our 'Wanted' ad off the website. A very kind lady in St Yrieix La Perche, got in touch, she had a freezer surplus to her requirements, that she offered to us for just 15 Euros! We collected it, and now have the perfect storage for our frozen boilies (carp bait). Coincidentally, the shelves were just the right size to fit 8 x 2.5kg packs. So it is now crammed with 80kg's of the little round offerings! Thanks very much, another success story." Colin 7 July 2009 www.sweetchestnutlake.co.uk

Sue Virr from www.nearlyheaven.com advertised her Hungarian Vizla puppies with us and this is what she had to say this week.

"Hi, I would like to write a testimonial for Sterling Shopping, their service is second to none, pardon the pun but, they do a STERLING service, hope they don't give it up for a while yet they are all very helpful, and nothing seems to  be too much trouble, after all that travelling they are still jolly. Keep it up guys, great job." Anita Ford 10 June 2009

"Having been involved in several large scale renovation projects in the Dordogne with several contractors, often with mixed results over the past five years I consider it my very good fortune to have come across Mr. M. Ash of Ash construction.


Martin ,of whom I had no previous knowledge, undertook a challenging project on my behalf which involved all aspects of general work, including  a new small build, timber floor replacement, plastering, tiling and the fitting of a new kitchen. I was delighted with the progress and more especially the quality of the end result.


Coming from a construction background myself , I set high standards for quality and industriousness which Martin invariably met or exceeded with his attention to detail, positive can do attitude and work ethic.


In the light of my experience I have no compunction in unreservedly recommending Mr. Ash to anyone considering employing him."


Neil J Welsh. Dordogne (20 April 2009)

Steve and Di of Beausoleil Property Services sent us this testimonial this week.  See their web site here www.beausoleilpropertyservices.com and also see the type of service Steve can offer you here Assistance


"Hi Steve Just thought I’d drop you a line to say thanks with all your help opening our French bank account and our visit to the Maire about our planning application, as with our previous visits to the notaire when we were purchasing our property, just having you there to help us understand the process, and get our queries answered was invaluable. It was a lucky day when we discovered you on “The Dordogne on line”. Have no doubt, we will be using your services in the future. Thanks again," Geoff Deabill & Kath Battelley Stansted Essex. (19 April 2009)

And yet another testimonial for Steve Pritchard

Many thanks." Hazel and Robin. (10 April 2009)

Linda contacted us last week looking for a translator and then sent us the email below -

I would like to recommend the
SOS Linguistic Sevice advertised on your site.
As you know, we were let down at the last minute by our interpreter for our property sale. Being August it was proving impossible to find a replacement. Dordogne on Line tried very hard to help when desperation set in, so thank you.
I had left a message on SOS's answer phone at the weekend and got a response on Monday. Janice promised to be there for us on Wednesday and she was. We had to wait much longer for the Acte de Vente to complete, than we had anticipated, as the Notary managed to be running very late. Janice was there for us to the end, had to arrange for someone else to pick up her children as she was so late,  and remained cheerful and helpful  throughout.
The fees are also very reasonable and Janice was embarrassed that she had to ask for a little more than stated, as the one hours work had turned into 3 hours. My buyers in fact insisted she took more than she asked for.
So I would like to thank Janice and commend her service. I would also like to commend these wonderful websites for finding
SOS linguistic services for us and any others in need of interpreters.
Please do publish this for others to see.
Many thanks
Linda' 9 August 2007

The site is very well presented and managed and offers a lot more than booking holidays. We have always had good responses for both summer holidays and long winter lets. We  are fully booked from now (March 2007) through to the 1st July 2008. Most of these bookings have come through Dordogne on Line and we are delighted. The Wanted section is particularly useful.
